Well, this will probably get me unfriended. How mortifying. 🙂 My reasons for quitting Facebook are numerous. It’s a distracting time suck. I am far more productive when I am not using it.

Ah, Christmas. What a concept. As we finally decompress in the days after – the house is clean, the unacceptable gifts (wool sweater which I am allergic to, and perfumed thrift store shirt three sizes too large which I am allergic to) donated to local homeless shelter, cat allowed outside during brief dry spell – … More Post-Christmas clean-up
So I am going to risk a rant here on Greenville racism. Greenville is actually a very well integrated, multicultural city. We have Germans, Russians, Sufi, Saudis, Hindu, Hispanics, Latinos, French, and more due to the various international and national companies with home bases here. When my partner and I moved here we were both … More Bah humbug. Racism in Greenville, SC this weekend.
So here is why the concept of a “War on Christmas” makes absolutely zero sense. There is a reason it is called Christmas, you know – the word is Latin, Christ + mas. Or rather Christ plus more, and that is precisely how all this mess got started… the Christian beliefs were added to, admixed … More Why “War on Christmas” makes no sense.

So Day 10 and while I am still being productive, I feel incredibly on edge. Rather like a big bag of jangly broken glass. I’d say I was definitely addicted to my likes! (Relevant music video here! – http://www.collegehumor.com/video/6907128/might-as-well-face-it-youre-addicted-to-likes-music-video) So today, I got curious and started looking into social media exterminating software. I figured that … More Social Media Free Challenge – Day 10
So tonight I’m going to make everybody hate me. I don’t particularly care. I’ve been really sick which means a lot of time skimming Facebook. Facebook is great for minimal interaction “living”. But for the moment I want to discuss something that really bothers me. For convenience I am going to use guy and lady … More Hey, Baby, What if I don’t Want to Marry You?

It’s almost like listening to a religious fanatic right after their first conversion. It’s boring, it’s rote, and it sounds bloody irrational. Well, I was converted to a healthy diet in January of 2013, … More I’m Going to Die? Of course, I’m listeni…(did my phone beep?)
